If your child is anything like mine they go through clothes like water! My daughter is only 6 months old and she already wears 9 to 12 month clothes. She’s growing so fast and I can hardly keep up her growth. Baby clothes get expensive so here a few tips and tricks I’ve learned to keep her clothed on the cheap.
Join Mommy Groups
There are a ton of mommy groups all over social media. Some of these mommy groups over cloth swaps or free clothes. Always be cautious and meet in public areas.
Like mommy groups, you can find free clothes through the marketplace on Facebook or on Craigslist. Always be cautious and meet in public areas.
Used Clothes Stores
I get the majority of my daughter’s clothes at a used cloth store called Once Upon a Child. (Not sponsored.) There are so many thrift stores that offer great quality gently used clothes for babies. Some of the clothes I’ve bought still have the shopping tags on them!
Shop in Advance
This is something I started to do when I first found out I was pregnant and I am so glad that I did. I shop clearance in larger sizes. That way when my daughter out grows a size she still has cloths that fit her and I’ve already bought them at a discounted price.
Save Your Change
This may sound silly but my husband and I save all our change. When little girl needs new clothes and we don’t have the budget we brake out that change. This may sound crazy but we like to use all our resources and that means using every penny!
Hand-me-downs are great because they are free! In all seriousness, handy-me-downs can really save you a ton of money. You may have to pick through a few things but honestly, my husband and I have saved a ton of money from family and people in our community just trying to get rid of stuff, and our little girl has been so blessed by the used clothes. Also, you can pass them down to another family when you’re finished; sharing with your community and other parents.
